Good bus company but station needs more information for tourists

The journey was quick and comfortable....That there is no information in the bus station to tell you if you bought an online ticket, then you’ll need to get the copy of the official ticket. Also it was not helpful that the bus station departures information had no way of telling which bus stop number your bus was arriving at, unless you went outside to find out which stop was stopping where you needed.

Great driver but clearly very tired

Clean bus and easy booking...The driver was clearly tired on the long stretches and I watched him nod off as if falling asleep 3 times which made me extremely nervous. The rest of the journey was fine and I was prepared to leave an excellent review as otherwise he was a fantastic driver but this CANNOT happen- open the window, put on music, drink loads of coffee or something but you should be able to do 2.5 hours without an issue or don’t come to work. Next time I will probably take the train so I don’t have to worry.
The bus is really on time!...
